  • de Jung

    Practice Area:
    Personal Injury
    Outcome:
    A very sweet settlement for my client
    Description:
    An elementary school teacher was bicycling by a construction site on a weekend. Incorrect placement of equipment and required markings forced her into another lane of traffic where she was clipped by a passing car. It resulted in a broken shoulder and significant impairment of the use of her arm. Through investigation we located a neighbor who was so annoyed by the construction equipment that she took photos. This disproved the construction company's claims that its equipment was legally located. In other words, they were caught lying. After a very contentious trial, and before the jury deliberated, the defendants made a large cash offer which we accepted. The jury was then discharged.

    Business
    Date:
    Dec 01, 2008
    Outcome:
    Building near airport reduced in height
    Description:
    This was a complex case involving federal aviation regulations and several layers of state and federal laws. The Sunroad Building was constructed near the Montgomery Field Airport in San Diego. It was higher than allowed under federal regulations. After significant and very complex litigation, the building owner took the unprecedented step of disassembling the building's top two floors and reduced the height to one that was allowed under federal regulations, and thereby enhanced the safety of the airport and surrounding community.
